If you fill the water tank completely, you will be able to obtain approximately ice cubes. Change the water in water tank if it has waited around 2-3 weeks. 28
30 Icematic and ice storage container *optional Using the Icematic Fill the Icematic with water and place it into its seat. Your ice will be ready approximately in two hours. Do not remove the Icematic from its seating to take ice. Turn the knobs on the ice reservoirs clockwise by 90 degrees. Ice cubes in the reservoirs will fall down into the ice storage container below. You may take out the ice storage container and serve the ice cubes. If you wish, you may keep the ice cubes in the ice storage container. Ice storage container Ice storage container is only intended for accumulating the ice cubes. Do not put water in it. Otherwise, it will break. 29
31 Movable Body shelf: *optional Manually movable body shelf is an option enabling the usage of interior shelf volume of the refrigerator in a flexible way. When you want to store an item which is taller than the distance between two shelves, slide the manually movable body shelf holding it from its grips as shown in the figure and this will enable you to move the shelf upwards. By sliding the grip to the right, you can move the manual body shelf only 45 mm upwards. The manually movable body shelf can only be moved with max 10 kg load on it. If more than 10 kg will be loaded, then it should be used as a fixed shelf like others. In this case, if it is required to adjust the shelf height, first empty the food stuff, adjust it as per your height requirement and then load it with the food stuff. The shelf is intended to carry max. 40 kg while used as a fixed shelf. Humidity Controlled Crisper (FreSHelf) *optional Humidity controlled crisper feature keeps the humidity of vegetables and fruits under control and allows keeping the food fresh for a much longer time. We recommend you to place vegetables with leaves such as lettuce, spinach and vegetables vulnerable to humidity loss not vertical on their roots but horizontal in the crispers. While placing the vegetables consider their weight and place the heavy and solid vegetable to the bottom, light and soft vegetables to the top. Do not leave vegetables within plastic bags in the crispers. Leaving vegetables in plastic bags will make them spoil in a very short time. If it is required to separate vegetables for hygienic purposes, then use porous paper packing materials instead of plastic bags. Do not place fruits, mainly apple and also pear, apricot, peach etc. which produce ethylene gas together with other vegetables-fruits in the same crisper. The ethylene produced by these fruits will cause other vegetables-fruits to mature rapidly and then cause them to spoil in a shorter time. 30
32 6 Maintenance and cleaning A Never use gasoline, benzene or similar substances for cleaning purposes. B We recommend that you unplug the appliance before cleaning. B Never use any sharp abrasive instrument, soap, household cleaner, detergent and wax polish for cleaning. C Use lukewarm water to clean the cabinet of your refrigerator and wipe it dry. C Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one pint of water to clean the interior and wipe it dry.

B If your refrigerator is not going to be used for a long period of time, unplug the power cable, remove all food, clean it and leave the door ajar. C Check door seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food particles. A To remove door racks, remove all the contents and then simply push the door rack upwards from the base. ANever use cleaning agents or water that contain chlorine to clean the outer surfaces and chromium coated parts of the product. Chlorine causes corrosion on such metal surfaces. A Do not use sharp, abrasive tools, soap, household cleaning agents, detergents, kerosene, fuel oil, varnish etc. to prevent removal and deformation of the prints on the plastic part. Use lukewarm water and a soft cloth for cleaning and then wipe it dry. Protection of plastic surfaces C Do not put the liquid oils or oil-cooked meals in your refrigerator in unsealed containers as they damage the plastic surfaces of your refrigerator. In case of spilling or smearing oil on the plastic surfaces, clean and rinse the relevant part of the surface at once with warm water. 31
